William was born on January 28, 1930, to James and Mary (Schwering) Ball.  At a young age William started farming with his Grandpa Ball, and he continued farming until he needed to retire due to health concerns.  He then worked for his sister and brother-in-law at SMART Industries as a production supervisor and Human Resources for about 10 years. 

 

He was united in marriage to Evelyn Snyder, on June 24, 1954, they made their home on a farm in Duncombe, Iowa. William had an array of hobbies and interests that brought him immense joy. He possessed a remarkable talent for making crafts which he and Evelyn enthusiastically sold at craft shows. His passion extended to woodworking as well as creating Christmas decorations and holiday decor that added warmth to many homes during festive seasons. William enjoyed going to Minnesota and spending time with his special little girl Jenny, making pies together.  Furthermore, William truly cherished spending time outdoors; he reveled in everything nature had to offer.
